Grand Theft Auto’s wild and eccentric cousin is likely to return. Saint’s Row website updated, removing any mention of the franchise’s previous games and replacing them with a simple message that says “Rebooting”.
Aside from the announcement on its page, there isn’t any other notable information about anything being planned for the Saint’s Row franchise. However, the site still lists Deep Sliver as the publisher of the franchise and Volition as its developer.
Still, not ignoring what’s written on the walls (literally), whatever comes next for Saint’s Row will likely be brand new. The specific text is “reboot”, which leads to a fair assumption that the franchise is being rebooted. If that’s the case, it’s being teased in a very Saint’s Row way, with little or no subtlety.

In any case, it’s been a long time since the last main Saint’s Row title was released. Saint’s Row 4 was released on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2013, with a standalone expansion, Gat out of hell, released in 2015. In the time since, both titles have received porting to PS4, Xbox One, and even Nintendo Switch.
The final entry in the Saint’s Row series differs from the usual co-op-oriented approach to a single-player experience. Title Agent of Mayhem, the game was released in 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and is largely considered a failed experiment of the series.
While the future of the Saint’s Row franchise remains unclear, we’ll get a clear look at Gamescom’s opening night. Geoff Keighley, who is hosting the August 25 event, shared that the next Saint’s Row game will be revealed during the show on Twitter.
